Disposal of right to acquire shares

8(1)Where a person receives or becomes entitled to receive in respect of any shares in a company a provisional allotment of shares in or debentures of the company and he disposes of his rights paragraph 3 of Schedule 7 to the Finance Act 1965 shall apply as if the amount of the consideration for the disposal were a capital distribution received by him from the company in respect of the first-mentioned shares, and as if that person had, instead of disposing of the rights, disposed of an interest in those shares.

(2)If under Part II of Schedule 6 to the Finance Act 1965 it is to be assumed that, at a time after the creation of the rights and before their disposal, the said person sold and immediately reacquired the shares in respect of which the rights were created, the same assumption shall be made as respects the rights.

(3)This paragraph shall apply in relation to rights obtained in respect of debentures of a company as it applies in relation to rights obtained in respect of shares in a company.

(4)Sub-paragraph (6) of paragraph 4 of the said Schedule 7 (which is superseded by this paragraph) shall cease to have effect.
